Khalwale in trouble after petition is filed against him

Explanations demanded from Khalwale

Former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale

A petition has been filed against former Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale on indiscipline.

Ford-Kenya Kakamega branch filed the petition to the party headquarters accusing Dr Khalwale of undermining the party activities in and around Kakamega.

The disciplinary committee has written to the former senator demanding an explanation as to why disciplinary action should not be taken against him.

The committee asked the former senator to present himself before it on May 23, 2019, to defend himself against the allegation.

Your actions, if substantiated may constitute one or more of the offences within the party constitution amounting to gross misconduct attracting penalties including the payment of fines, reprimand, suspension, expulsion or dismissal from office,” the letter dated May 13 read in part.

Supporting other parties

Should you fail to respond to this letter by Tuesday, May 21, 2019, this committee shall draw relevant inference from your conduct and proceed to conclude this matter without further reference to you,” the letter further stated.

The petition is supported by five affidavits from the chairperson of the party’s Kakamega branch and five others and relate to Dr Khalwale conduct since he crossed over to support Deputy President William Ruto early last year.

In the petition, Ford-Kenya members accused the former senator of campaigning for other political parties and candidates against his own party’s candidates.

It further claims that Dr Khalwale has been supporting other political parties while serving as Ford-Kenya deputy leader and working with officials of other political parties.

He is also accused of ignoring local party leaders and working with other political party officials while at the same time openly embarrassing Ford-Kenya candidates in rallies.
